User selectable TLP or a low data mode
Have a user selectable option to turn TLP off, or have a low data mode that loads low rez thumbnails
I have some users with slow internet in rural areas and it takes forever for the site to load because of the large thumbnails with tiles. I see a few possible options to resolve this and am curious if any of them are achievable?
- Give the user the ability to turn off TLP altogether. I’m assuming TLP is too deeply ingrained in categories to make this happen.
- Give the user the ability to turn off Tiles and revert back to the standard TLP with small thumbnails. Again, probably not possible but I’m throwing out ideas.
- Give the user a low-data mode option that doesn’t load full resolution thumbnails. I assume this would require generating a whole different set of thumbnails for all images, but if they are low rez would it not take up much space/processing, so maybe a possibility?
Any other ideas? I know I can reduce the thumbnail size, but this would negatively impact the vast majority of users that do have good internet.
